Opened up the exhaust and there is no catalyc converter. Need your help

Opened up the exhaust and there is no catalyc converter. My car has two lambda sensors and the catalic is empty. The muffler is also empty so my questions is. Could that affect how the car runs. It is a 2.5 liter. For now I want to wait with buying a new catalyc because in europe they are expensive.
Is it ok to put a emulator on the secoond lambda sensor?

Whats the problem? Yes it could effect how it runs, more air flow, more power.

There is no CE light.
Had it connected to a computer and also there were no faults.

I wouldn't mess with it, if it ain't broken don't fix it!

My guess is somebody (assuming you're not the original owner) gutted the cat because they thought they'd get more power, then maybe put o2 simulators so there wasn't a CEL.

OR, the cat broke down over time and the down stream O2 sensor is bad, thus making the cat monitor think everything is ok.
